Our troop for tho past year has

very good results, giving suitable re
wards* for the throe highest scouts
each month. Wo have made an ad
dition to the system in which awards
are given the two patrols having
the highest number of merits and de
merits each month The patrol hav
ing the highest number of points
gain (merits minus demerits) Is
awarded an honor emblem which is
a large red dot about the sizo of a
quarter which Is sewn on tho patrol
flag. TJie patrol having the highest
number of demerits each month is
awarded the janitor's cmblenv—a
broom which thoy must use to keep
the troop room looking splo and
span for a month. This month the
Reaver patrol Is keeping the room
clean, while the Crow Patrol won
the honor emblem. The patrol hav
ing the most honor emblems on
their dag by June- 4 —the troop's
birthday— will be awarded some
special prize not yet decided upon.
On Tuesday, December If, the

they spent the greater part of the
day passing outdoor requirements.
In the afternoon the troop camped
under the bridge while It was raining

The Wigwam
Weil, here we are again, fellows.
Now to eee who came eut With their
work. Maybe Seme ot you fellowe
do not knew what Scouting Is while
some other Scents will give a differ
ent solution. Well, Boeuts, here is
one which maybe some explanation
of what Scouting Is I anyway we'll
leave It up to you, The other day
when coming home from market, 1
saw a boy helping an old man to
get his heavy wageh load of working
tools across the busy seetlon of the
down town street, Perhaps this
man was a hard working man and
his little wagon whlah he used to
haul his tools to work with was un
doubtedly many years old and was
about falling apart, The man was
old and was very weak andHhs Good
Scout practicing his Good Turn
every day did his by helping the eld
gentleman across the busy Intersec
tion of a downtown corner. What
Is making Scouting a success 7 Is It
the big men that are with us 7 Is It
first class and otbsr ranks of Scouts
that is helping to boast our great
organization? Well, perhaps you
have your Ideals but my opinion of
success Is the fact that a Good Turn
Is done each and every day and this
Itself helps to make the boy great
and feel confidence In himself know
ing that he helped a weaker brother
In his every day labor. Db YOUR
great big Good Turn every day and
don't stop at one but do a hundred
and then feel satisfied and then you
are one of us In our great big or
ganization. That's me all over, fel
lers. Do a good turn daily.
(By Red Cloud)
It was afternoon on a cold, som
ber day in the late autumn when
my companion and 1 left Pen brook
by the Hoerncrstown road. A light
snow flurry died away as golden
shafts of sunlight pierced their way
through the thick clouds. A cold,
stinging wind prevented any feeling
of warmth tn the sunlight and the
bright rays served only to add to the
beauty of a golden landscape. The
fields lay sear and brown; the dry,
brown leaves rustled on the oak
trees and the woods and hlllls were'
shrouded In a purple haze.
About a mile east of Penhrook
along this road there stands the
ruins of an old church building. The
entire western wall has fallen out:
the roof hangs by one side only; bits
of plaster and broken brick lie
among the tall weeds and the at
-1 moephere of the place Is one of
desolation and neglect. Back of the
i building is the usual graveyard. The
j old weather-beaten stones which
i now stand at all- angles were placed
there many years ago.
We walked among them and fn
' the Inscriptions read such as
these: 1738. ITS 7. 1738. 17S and
1778. It came to my mind that the
date first mentioned above was the
year of Washington's birth. One
whose body hea burled here was
born fn the days when the tittle
American Army lay starving and
freezing at Valley Forge.
Ashes from wood fires lay at sev
eral places in the churchyard. An
empty whisky bottle stood on a
fallen gravestone. Weeds grow In
wild profusion without a friendly
hand to check them. As we walked
away, a farm wagon rattled by. The
driver who passed within ten feet
of the old graves never turned his
head. Hs probably passes here day
after day. but I venture to say that
he does not know how many, many
years before his time the old stones
were lovingly placed at the heads of
the graves that axe forgotten and
passed by, unnoticed.
As we walked toward Progress,
fleecy particles of snow again
danced hi the air.. Tangles of black
berry bushes grow along tl™ rail
fences that run beside the road.
Here and there at the foot of a
fencepost Were the red and green
leaves of wild strawberry plants. A
gust of wind carried on Its breath
a shower of oak and chestnut leaves.
About half a mills front Progress
there Is a ptenia grove known aa
"Flßhburo'S Woods." Fifty yards to
the east of this grove there Is an
other patch of woodland and the
casual stroller who tramps the road
between the two patches does not
know that tn the smaller' one there
is an old cemetery..
Many of the stones that once
marked graves have disappeared.
Two markers standing in the woods
boar Herman Inscriptions and the
dates 1748-4,813 and 1780-r8430.. Two
others, lying on the ground, ore cov
ered with moist earth and fallen
leaves. The one Is broken in two.
The dates on the stones tell that the
persons for whom they were erected
were born in the years 177.8 and
1747... This little graveyard prob
ably holds an Interesting story In
connection with ths early history
of Dauphin county..
A walk of another mils brought
us to the old graveyard that lies
along the Jbnestuwn rood, apposite
Shoop's Church,. The sun, low be
the west, made a last, brave effort
bo shine through the clouds and the
windows of church and farmhouse
were tit by the reflection of a dull
red glow..
m this burying ground, amid
clumps of boxwood, we found
twelve stones bearing dates between
168-? and 1788.. On many stones
the dates have been obliterated by
wind and rain. It was by turning
ever fallen markers and scraping
away the moist earth that we were
abto to find such dates as 17XL, 1754
and 1780,. Ths majority of these
■tones too bear German Inscriptions.
A white-haired student of history,,
who lives in the neighborhood, vol
unteered the Information that the
first person burled In this graveyard
was a woman who had been scalped
by Indiana He Also told of the days
when the funeral processions were
made up of hayiadders and men on
horseback. In later days come the
picturesque Conoetoga wagon and
after the Conestoga wagon, the
buggy.. He toM amusing stores of
the days when gal Ants and country
lassies came riding, two on a horse,
to church or to country picnic—but
that may make another story..
< By this time the sun had disap
peared behind the western hilla
lights began to glow tn farmhouse
windows and as daylight faded the
air grew colder and cotderv Over
the hill glowed the light from a Lin
glestown car, hut to have ridden
ome tp. such a prooaio conveyance,
after having spent the afternoon In
an atmosphere of long ago, would
have seemed entirely out of place—
almost eacrellglous. Down the road
In the gathering dusk came ft farm
wagon nnd despite the vjr'nd and the
growing eliill, We eltmbed In beside
the driver and rode along, perfectly
satisfied with the rattle of the
wheels and the pounding of hoofs
on the frffoen road,
Scoutmasters Plan

TO MOTHERS 1 If you will learn to give

stead of castor oil, calomel and pills, you will save
money and avoid lots of worry and trouble. Truly 1
When one of the kiddies has a white tongue, a tainted breath,
sour stomach or- a cold; when bilious, constipated, feverish, remember,
a Cascaret to quickly "work" away the nasty bile, sour fermentationi
and poisons should always be the first treatment given.
Children really like to take candy Cascarets and they never grips
the tender bowels, never injure, and never disappoint the worried
mother. Give Cascarets to children one year old and upwards. Each
10 cent box contains full directions for children and adults.
